The Cornell Lab of Ornithology has teamed up with DJ Ben Mirin to bring us BeastBox. Make your own music by mixing wild animal voices with beatbox loops and unlock "Beast Mode" by adding five animals from the same ecosystem. You get access to a special track created by DJ Mirin!
I've been playing with it over the last day or so, and it's really well done and addicting. It's neat learning about the different animals in each of the ecosystems and listening to the actual audio samples. I could see this being a great intro activity for youth at an afterschool program or STEM camp.
I'm in love the funky artwork, created by Cornell Hip Hop Collection! Check out some of the animated animals!
